resorts with decent houses?

Recommended Posts

borchawk1

planning on going up the last Thursday of the month and was wondering if anyone knows a decent resort that has sleeper houses. Finally convinced my wife to go up. Are there any rentals out on 8-mile flat? Any info would be greatly appreciated as she is always happier when she's catching fish (who isn't?) wink.gif

Since your wife is going and I'd suspect you'd want a nice cozy house, I'd go with McQuoids or Macs Twin Bay. Ask for their 2 for 1 deal too.

I'll also give a thumbs up to McQuoids. They have very clean houses and take good care of you while you're out there. My wife and I went up there with some other friends and couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of the housese. You may end up paying a little more but it's all worth it.

I'll Ditto the vote on McQuoids. Very nice houses. Used to rent from them all the time. We now have our perm out of Macs Twin Bay, they are great people. They also have indoor facilities (pottie rooms) this keeps the ladies happy especially at -20 to-30 degrees. grin.gif Good luck, Bill

I like your avatar Chevy. Personally I like what Randy did in that picture. After all the packer fans didn't let up at all after last weeks ordeal.

that goes double for me! Thanks for all the ideas everyone, at least now I have some places to call. The wife is starting to get cold feet on the trip so I will have to convince her that the house will be nice!

Use the "Resort Locator" up on the top of this page. Find McQuoid's link and take a look. And, she'll be convinced pretty easily. Also, the place will be warm and ready for your arrival.

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem.

      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA
